I saw him perform live when he was around 82 — simply amazing. Most of the performance was jazz, but since he was at Georgetown University, one of the beautiful pieces he conducted was a choral mass, with the refrain “Bow down, bow down.” It was gorgeous. I have not been able to find where it is recorded, if any freepers can help.

His most famous choral Mass setting is To Hope. Telarc released a version recorded at the National Cathedral.

The Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Bossa Nova USA," a somewhat rare album, was my first ever record album. Loved it.

Got to see the Quartet at Arizona State U back in the late 1960s---just before Paul Desmond was gone. Got to go backstage with Joe Morello. Amazing drummer.

A lot of jazz players looked down on Brubeck because he wasn't far out/Miles Davis-ish enough, but he epitomized the best of jazz.
